Did you know a yellow plate or bowl could make your child eat all their dinner, whereas a blue one could cause them not to take a single bite?
It certainly makes sense, when I think of blue sushi or blue scrambled eggs, it makes my stomach turn, whereas golden pasta bake and cream cheese salmon bagels cause me to dribble with delight!
The colour of our plate, food and place mat can all have an affect on our appetite – so if you need a little help in the feeding department we have designed a colour guide for happy eating:
White – can cause mindless snacking and overeating
Yellow – feel good colour & stimulates appetite
Orange – energizing & stimulates appetite
Pink – warm and happy, stimulating appetite
Red – exciting, energizing
Green – fresh, inspires healthy eating
Purple – satisfied, can suppress the appetite
Blue – suppresses the appetite
Brown – can stimulate hunger
Black – eat with caution
